My review will be completely different than most because my visit to A Tavola will hold the most wonderful memories for me. 2148 W. Chicago is the house I grew up in, it's the house where many wonderful and traditional dinners have been eaten by my family. I haven't been in my old house since 1975, and when I heard it was a restaurant I could only hope someday to visit. I live in Arkansas, and never thought I would come back home. However, my daughter, husband, and a childhood friend made arrangements for a vacation to Chicago and to A Tavola Restaurant. From the moment the owner greeted us then suggested delicious foods like I've never eaten before to the tour of my old house new fantastic memories were made. Words will never express my gratitude for the wonderful food and memories, but I thank all of you who made this a special date.
Hugs,
Lorrie Popow

Is quite possibly one of the best meals I've had in Chicago. It's pretty simple, with brown sage butter and parmesan, but I highly recommend it, with a glass of cabernet and the fresh figs with mozzarella.

My fiance and I went here for Valentine's Day and found the food and staff to be superb. From the fresh focaccia to the extensive daily specials, this place has everything. The gnocchi is soft and buttery, and the entrees were packed with interesting flavors. The waiter suggested excellent wines to compliment my grouper and his beef tenderloin. The portions are quite reasonable, and I would actually suggest sharing one of the courses (we shared the gnocchi and still didn't have room for dessert). With wine, the bill will probably run you $100 for two, but could be less if you share some courses. The flavors are worth every penny! This is our new favorite neighborhood gem!

A Tavola has the best Gnocchi I've ever tasted. Small, but fantastic menu with extremely friendly staff. Decent wine list as well. Great for a romantic dinner or small group.

The food was excellent! I'm still dreaming about the gnocchi with brown butter and crispy sage leaves. It was spectacular! Everything was great from the tasty braised short ribs with creamy saffron risotto to the wonderfully moist halibut in the yummy caper sauce! We just love this place. Nice wine list........and the panna cotta.......oh, my! Even the foccacio was xtra good. A must try!

This hard to find restaurant is worth the expedtion. The decor is simple and personal. The music was soft and at any time I felt like we could start a conversation with the table next to us, and did. The selection of wine was available to any pocket-book. From $20 to $200. I opted for the $22 and was very pleased. The menu was selective, and the food was phenominal.

All around great place. The food isn't necessarily jumping off your tongue, but they never miss a beat. From the courteous service at the door, to the heavenly gnocchi, to the well-priced wine list. All set in a very private but friendly atmosphere. A MUST for any real Chicago diner.

This little whitewashed trattoria just off the trendy-restaurant path is worth a trip for some fantastic gnocchi---especially when it's prepared with brown butter and sage. Feather-light and often made from seasonal ingredients, such as…
